I posted this blog about one of my greatest influences in music back in 2013. Paul Williams has gone on to do so many incredible things in his life over the years... and still going strong in his 70s.
I really love his collaboration with Daft Punk on a gorgeous piece of music: "Touch."
Here is Paul talking about his collaboration and his life and work with addictions.
He not only inspired music in me, but my first live Rock Opera back in the '80s, "Acceptance," which was based on "Phantom of the Paradise."
Watch "Daft Punk Unchained" - a great documentary on the group and their innovative techniques and style.
